    Default UKMMA fights to make in the LW division

    As the title suggests and I have taken the top 20 as a guide from the most recent YourMMA rankings (March)

    1.
    2. Paul Sass
    3. Curt Warburton
    4. Rob Sinclair
    5.
    6. Terry Etim
    7. Andre Winner
    8. Martin Stapleton
    9. Tim Newman
    10. Colin Fletcher
    11. Steven Ray
    12. Jason Ball
    13. Greg Loughran
    14. Mike Wilkinson
    15. Paul Redmond
    16. Chris Hoban
    17. Martin Delaney
    18. Lee Wieczorek
    19. Tommy Maguire
    20. Brendan Loughnane


    I've taken out Pearson and Parke from #1 and #5 as they are UFC fighters.

    In the recent news of UFC cuts for Sass, Etim and Fletcher there are some potentially epic UKMMA fights to be had in this division. I understand that some fighters are signed to specific promotions but would still make for good fun to see what fights could happen and where?

    I would hate to see the recently cut guys to take some easy fights and pad their records

    I was only thinking a similar thing the other day how cool would it be for someone like the UFC to put on a show with only 1 weigh class on to see exaclty how people fare against people with similar rankings. The problem you have with your idea is that you'll always have fighters signed to UK Promotions putting a spanner in the works

    If nothing else that list shows what a talented domestic LW division.

    Surely a tournament over several shows featuring the top guys would be incredible, come on someone!!

    I don't necessarily think that finding a promotion to do a tournament would be a problem, its fighters dropping out, getting injured and getting 'signed' to other things that would be.

    Currently Brendan is with the UFC isn't he so I wouldn't see that one happening just yet.
